Dave Mirra is currently in Kona to watch the race and train on the GoPro Ironman World Championships course. I bumped into the former X-Games superstar converted triathlete at Da Poke Shack on Ali'i Drive and that gave me a chance to check out his custom painted Cervelo P5.
The paint scheme is very stealthy or murdered as some folks call it, and the details are very nicely thought out.
The 3T Aduro bars were also given a stealthy look.
The chrome and red details inside the fork blades make quite an impression.
A glossy black Cervelo logo on the matte black frame is only visible at certain angles. But the frame is distinctive enough where one does not need to read the name to know what it is.
Chromed graphics can be found in various areas on the bike including the name of the pilot.
Dave Mirra's wife Lauren, his kids and dogs get lots of love and attention on the top tube.
Mirra has an XLab Torpedo cage between his arms and he bolted that Garmin mount to his stem. But he said he may move it further up front.
The custom Di2 shift button setup is likely the handy work of Cervelo's Jason Losey.
The bar tape has a very nice texture.
A symbolized American flag adorns the rear of the seat cluster.
Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 derailleurs and a little red highlight on the outside where the seatstays and chainstays meet. More chrome and his logo Be A Dad Not A Fad on the inside of the stays.
Mirra painted this XLab cage matte black because he likes the look.
